Quote of the Week

"Is there a real world where young people always respect their always respectful parents? Where Dick Faversham always asks Patty Fairchild to the Senior Prom? Where Dan Baxter, the bully, and Mumps, his toady, always get their comeuppance? The 'rigid world of good and bad' is infinitely easier to write about than the real world. Because the writer of books about the real world has to dig deep and tell truths."

--Ursula Nordstrom (Editor-in-chief of juvenile books at Harper & Row from 1940 to 1973.)
